All students experience learning loss over summer vacation; however underserved children lose more than two months in reading achievement while their middle-class peers maintain or improve reading achievement. Limited access to educational activities and nutritional meals over summer break are two causes of the achievement gap.
In a single program, we feed the body and the mind. Children develop healthy habits while developing learning skills in an enjoyable way. We provide these children with a unique opportunity to maintain reading and math skills over the summer along with a reliable healthy meal provided by Children Across America. The program runs Monday through Friday.
